1/72 IAC Fouga Magister

Recommended Posts

Recently finished three of these using the limited edition IAC markings included with the
standard kit by one of our LHS, the 4th Fouga(220) was completed with one of the
Maxdecal IAC sets from a a couple of years ago.

Very nice. A nice fleet of magisters. I like the colours you've used. There one of the plane's that look a pleasure to fly. Jets don't have to be supersonic and have a very loud engine and powerful afterburner to be great. If I was to pick a jet to fly, it would be a jet similar to the magister, if not the actual plane. Regards

Those are really nice - and I applaud your perseverance in finishing four of them! It's all I can do to finish one model before my mind wanders. Very nice finish on all of them, too :thumbsup:

Well you have the Silver Swallows line up. Get some pilot figures to stand beside them on a base and you have a Silver Swallows diorama. Two more and you have the entire fleet.

They were tiny aircraft but they were loud. I remember being in Baldonnel watching a couple starting up. The sound was insane, extremely high pitch from those little Marbores that even got through with your hands over your ears.

Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. The Magister can be done in so many schemes, but the Silver Swallows scheme has to be one of the classics.

Lovely job one one of my favourite aircraft.

I've got the Max Decals 1/48 set for the Magister but can't get my mitts on a kit to put them on.

Given that the only available one seems to be the FM kit that might not be a bad thing!

Another 1/72 kit.... nice, never heard of VALOM, does anyone know is it a new tooling or is it a Heller re-pop.

So far I have built three Valom kits and they are not made for beginners ( Hampden, Devastator and Brigand)

Last year Valom made a Dassaut Ouragan which a little better than the Heller kit with more details, so I can expect at least the same for this Fouga.
